Girl Hug

Today (well actually, two days ago) is my opportunity to add a project to the MiC Store Blog!  This is a project that I did for the Whimsy Magazine last month and I've combined images using Whimsy and Make it Crafty to create this scene.  The Make it Crafty images are all set on the sides of the images and then cropped so I only show half of it - in effect, it creates a more personal image and one that looks more like a real picture.  After all, how often are our pictures taken where *something* hasn't been cropped!  LOL

You can see the background was created using several elements from different themes... such as Paris Elements (to create the bottom of the wall), Winter Scene Elements (for the snow, of course) and the door, windows and Christmas tree were also included.  Why the window is open on a cold winter day?  I don't know but maybe they burnt the turkey and needed to air out the house a bit.  LOL 

Once the background was built, I added the characters.  Even though these are everyday characters, I thought they would be perfect for a Christmas themed card and that big hug says it all!  :D

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great weekend!


  1. What a fun scene with a couple of great characters.

  2. Hi Barbara, WOW this scene you've created looks fantastic! I love your card, and the colouring is amazing... must have taken ages!

  3. What a fab little scene you have built. I love the colours too. Of course the window is open as they were chatting through it before the one inside rushed out to hug the one outside. Lucky it is open really, as she's locked out now... X

  4. This is so cute!! What an adorable scene, and those chipboard snowflakes are the perfect finishing touch! xo
